There is a flat spot on the belt. DH is convinced he is installing the belt correctly.

Belt from bottom of Motor Pulley should not touch the Idler Pulley.
Can you post a picture of the "end view" of the Roller ?

once it lifts up, the belt is not touching. That is the only way that amount took up the correct slack of the belt for the drum that we could see.

The first two pictures were taken from above. Then you wanted the "end view" so I took one from the unused back vent hole (since we use a side vent). They were all the same installation, so I'm kind of confused. We didn't change anything that I know of. I don't think.

So what picture were you looking at that you said was installed wrong? The two pictures? Post #61? or Post #63?

OK, we have put it back together for the - what was that? The 4th time?

Yay it's working!! Thank you for all of your help.

I also replaced one of the sensor bars along with the new belt - it never occurred to me I would need to order 2 sensor bars - I'm Blond - don't hold it against me. It didn't really need it but it was so inexpensive, I just ordered it anyway. When I did replace it, I found out that underneath it, it was caked up with hard damp lint residue. So I took the other one out and cleaned under it also. My clothes were not drying the last time under the Heavy Duty Very Dry cycle but did dry under the Speed Dry cycle. I think the Heavy Duty cycle is under the sensor side? They were very very damp. This time they dried normal on that side.

Next time I think I'd get the extended warranty. This has been fun but there ought to be a better way to meet new people and learn new things :thanks:
